What You Didn’t Know About Double Disc Pumps

Can a Double Disc Pump Have Ball Valves? Yes. In fact, ball valve technology is helping to usher in the next era of double disc style pumps. The ball valves help to break up solids and make pumping thicker municipal sewage easier. The ball valves also make it much easier to maintain the pump.

Diaphragm Pumps Now Available With Control Panels

One of the trending customer requests this past year is custom diaphragm pump stations equipped with control panels and mobility options. To give you an example (and some ideas for your own pump application), one of our customers who happens to be one of the largest snack food producers globally, contacted Wastecorp's engineering department asking for design proposals for a 3" diaphragm pump out system complete with a mobility kit and the ability to directly control the pump operation.

Wastecorp Mud Sucker Pumps Now Available With Variable Frequency Drives

Do you need to adjust the speed of your pump’s electric motor, modulating the power being delivered? We’ve got good news; all Mud Sucker diaphragm pump models are now available with a variable frequency drive (VFD). VFD’s help to accommodate fluctuating demand by adjusting pump energy consumption and costs by adjusting the amount of power delivered to the motor for pumping specific tasks.

Wastecorp is proud to be a global supplier of pump systems for manufacturers of membrane bioreactor systems or MBR’s. MBR’s have become a popular for small footprint new wastewater treatment systems in both the municipal and industrial sewage treatment spaces. Manufacturers of membrane bioreactors use Wastecorp pump products for the activated sludge pumping process.

What Kinds of Pumps Are Needed For MBR’s?

When designing an MBR today it is almost critical to have pumps made by an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified pump manufacturer who also adheres to hydraulic institute standards. This helps to ensure that the pumps have a track record, are of high quality and have been properly tested prior to installation in the MBR and customer use. MBR’s typically work with suspended solids, settlement separation systems, mixed liquor and concentrated waste products. The types of pumps available for mbr’s depend on the type of application:

MBR Mud Sucker Diaphragm Pumps Systems
One of the most popular pumps selected for inclusion in a municipal or industrial MBR is the Mud Sucker diaphragm pump. MBR manufacturers have specified this pump for the last few years and it is growing tremendously in popularity. First there is a wide product offering for either municipal or industrial MBR’s. Select from 1.5”-4” connection sizes with activated sludge handling capabilities up to 220 GPM depending on the model selected. Mud Sucker pumps are adaptable for mobile and stationary MBR’s. Electric, engine, air or hydraulic drive systems are available without significantly increasing the cost of the pump. Mud Sucker pumps are extremely cost effective pumps that are simple to use and service. Engineers and operators love them. Repair parts are relatively inexpensive when compared to alternatives.

MBR Plunger Pump Systems
For heavier activated sludge transfer requirements for membrane bioreactor systems Sludge Master plunger pumps have become a popular option especially for thick slurry pumping. The manufacturer recently launched a small footprint model called the Sludge Master Space Saver that can fit into a compact MBR.

MBR Sludge Pro Double Disc Pumps
For a less maintenance intensive MBR pump product the double disc pump is a popular option for higher solids and sludge concentrations. The double disc pump is part of the diaphragm pump family so, the double disc pump is essentially a more robust version of a diaphragm pump. Solids management happens with either a clack valve (flapper) or check ball system which is up to the MBR manufacturer or engineer to decide. The factory can provide support in selecting which is more ideal.
